10 Years of SSC Stories: Developing confidence and a global perspective

October 7, 2020

By: Jade Ta

My program assistant position at the Student Success Centre (SSC) is my first job, and I could not have asked for more.

As part of the SSC’s guiding principles, the word “develop” describes our global experience program’s mission of building McMaster students into global citizens. We take pride in the work we do to assist students in advancing their intercultural competency through international sojourns.

The word “develop” also describes my transformation from a shy first-year student who was not sure what she wanted to do with her life, to a much more confident alumna who has discovered her passion and purpose. My colleagues are the most wonderful people I have ever had the pleasure to work alongside, who have helped me grow both as a person and as a young professional.

By sharing my story, I would like to invite everyone to join me in celebrating the SSC’s ten years of supporting students’ success.
